Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to listen to ballads and this new song should certainly be added to your playlist! ‘Rain’ is a duet sung by SISTAR’s Soyou and EXO’s Baekhyun. We love how their voices fit together and though the message is sad, the music will make you feel cozy.
The music video takes place in a high school, where we follow a girl through her school day. In each scene, whether she’s drawing or playing sport, there’s a sky dancer somewhere nearby. We can assume that it’s a symbol of the happy times she used to experience with the boy she loved. The fact the boy does not appear in the MV shows that he is no longer in her life, as expressed by the lyrics.
In terms of the backing track, it is quite simple which fits the tone well. Only natural instruments such as the guitar, piano and drums are used which reflect the beauty of young love. Both Baekhyun and Soyou’s vocals are soft and soothing and when they harmonize you can really hear their talent. Their voices are a perfect match!
Sadly, the song is about a love between two young people that didn’t last. At the beginning, both halves of the couple reflect on the love they once shared before they broke up on a rainy day. Now whenever it rains, they are reminded of the other person and find themselves still missing them.
Emotional and moving, this song had us hitting the replay button over and over again! Now whenever it’s raining, we have the perfect song to listen to. We hope to see more collaborations like this in the future.
